Setup a Dev Environment
To setup your development environment you will need to first create a Container, followed by selecting a new plan if you have not yet done so.
Create a New Container
If you have just signed up you will be prompted to select a new template. You can also navigate to
New > Container within the menu bar, and from there select the template of your choice. In this tutorial we will select the Ruby on Rails template.
After selecting a template you can name the container or leave the default name as is. Select
Next after you have made your selection.
Note: Stack templates include a sample app with a database already configured, allowing you to start coding on a new app immediately. Basic templates provide you with a Linux environment and many interpreters and tools pre-installed, but no sample app.
Select Your Plan
If you have not signed up for a plan yet then you will be prompted to at this point. Additional information on pricing and details for each plan can be found on the pricing page.
Select a plan and enter your payment information. You will not be billed until the end of the month. More information can be found in the Billing & Pricing FAQ.
After a moment your development environment will be created. Click on the
IDE button to get started.
